. other than dismissively saying he disavows the comments, the texas congressman has been relatively silent on the issue of race. and this follows a pattern we've seen all year. whenever racial controversies flare up, deny, disavow, or dispute as quickly as possible and then pretend the matter is behind you. governor rick perry employed this tactic when he tripped over that hunting ranch with the racist name that his family leeds in the 1980s. governor haley barbour of mississippi tlooeds recognized he had a race problem during his exploratory phase earlier this year. he floated the idea of giving a speech on race after revealing a blind spot as big as the confederate flag. but it is believed that barbour pulled the plug on a possible campaign because he couldn't figure out how to deliver such an address without hurting himself politically. and then there's herman cain, who used race as a hammer against his critics. those who dared criticize him for anything were stuck on the, quote, democrat plantation, or fearful of, quote, an accomplished, articulate, optimistic black man, or any

was talking to my evangelical christian sister, who i love dearly, who loves in texas, and i was telling her about what i was doing and about the issue, and she was completely on board. and i think that people -- americans across the political spectrum agree that it is the citizens of the country who should be determining the laws. and as we become a more participatory democracy, and as our government actually reflects our will, then i think that the view offer government will become a much more positive thing. but we have the ability -- it's our right, as citizens, to pass laws. the trouble with this corporate personhood is that corporations claim these constitutional rights to overturn our democratically enacted laws and thwart ourwill. so -- and that's why it's also so important that i feel that it's not just focusing on citizens united, which is the most recent and blatant example of this, but there are other constitutional rights that corporations have claimed for themselves that have very serious implications for the environment, for worker safety, and for rights of communities to prot
